Rebuild Together focuses on the benefits that tourism may provide to help communities recover from the effects of COVID-19. When we go on vacation, a few easy decisions can help us support local communities and nature in the places we visit.
Here are a few things to think about before you start planning your next trip
Support the local economy while on vacation by purchasing local food and drink, excursions, curios, or experiences. Stay in indigenously owned hotels or lodges. This has the potential to create jobs and increase living standards.
Protect nature by spending money with local businesses that are devoted to wildlife protection, contributing to local initiatives, or paying national park entry fees.
